Marvelous Middle Grade Monday

If it's Monday then that means it's time for Marvelous Middle-Grade Monday! We love this meme and all the bloggers that participate, so make sure you go to Ms. Shannon Messenger's blog to see the list of the bloggers that have GREAT Middle-Grade Books to tell you about.

This week my MMGM is Middle School: The Worst Years of my Life.  Our Horizons class was assigned this book to read since we are all getting a little excited about going to Middle-School next year.  This is a really short book, so if you aren't really excited about reading this one might be a gook book for you.

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life
Authors: James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts
Illustrator: Laura Parks
MMGM review by Marsh

Rafe has suspended his operation to try  to break all the Hills Village Middle School rules.  He's all done because he wants to be normal.  What fun is that?  Now his best friend, Leo, is giving him the silent treatment.  He's also stopped selling Zoom in his locker--that means no more sugary goodness at school.  Many hope he will restart his operation, but many people think not.  W have lost hope of him breaking every single rule in the HVMS conduct book.

I really like this book.  It is super witty.  I really liked when Rafe was in detention and the author portrayed him as a knight fighting a dragon (the teacher).  I also enjoyed it because it had a Diary of a Wimpy Kid kind of mentality.

The second book in this series just came out too.
